Are you a lifelong fan of Melody Carlson's books ? Wanting to move from her YA/Teen novels to her adult fiction ?
Review: Homeward- Melody Carlson- July 1997
When I was given this to review , I didn't realise that it was such an old book LOL . Growing up, I have always been a big Melody Carlson fan and have loved her novels whether they be Teens/YA and Adult Fiction.
"Yes, the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King , and my God".
Homeward takes us on a journey of forgiveness, family and friendships. Twenty years ago, Meg Lancaster left her hometown of Crandal after a huge fight occured at her Grandpa's funeral . The fight caused Meg to pack up everything and leave Crandal with the pretense of severing all family ties. Now Twenty years later , Meg is returning home after a broken engagement to her boss's son Jerred. Meg decides to kill two birds or in this case three birds with one stone as her Grandmother is dying , a reunion with her mother whom she has seen nor spoken to in twenty years and of course her sister Erin and her family. When Meg returns home, it seems that she has the stamp of Progidal daughter on her forehead and as the novel goes along , we read as past hurts and regrets are brought up through the novel and it seems that the only way Meg can find true happiness is to forgive past trangressions. When Meg visits her Grandmother's home , memories of the Cranberry fields her Grandad used to own and the fun times start to flow back - Is Meg's calling to re-ignite the Cranberry fields of Crandal ? Of course, it wouldn't be a story without a bit of romance as a blast from the past Matthew may turn out to be Meg's Mr Right.
